How to choose the best light bulb for your home



The bulb market has undergone major changes since traditional incandescent light bulbs were removed from the market and replaced by low-energy light bulbs.


And to make a good choice of these, it allows us to save a lot of money on our electricity bill at the end of the month. If you are interested in knowing which bulb is for you, in Fincabia, we help you to choose the best bulb for your home.


Currently we can find many types of bulbs but the most used for home use are LED bulbs and low energy bulbs. What are they different?


The LED bulbs represent a higher cost but the useful life of these is much higher.

For example, a low power bulb can get up to 10,000 hours of service life while an LED bulb could reach 50,000 hours in the best cases.

The difference is 5 times greater, so even though the investment at the beginning is higher in the LED bulbs, in the long run it compensates for the purchase.


One of the important aspects when considering buying a light bulb for our home, will be to review the lumens provided by it and the consumption by watts.

Other aspects that you have to take into account when choosing a bulb is the color temperature, since according to the Kelvin value that has the bulb we can obtain a cooler, warmer or more neutral light. Here are the differences:


Warm light: this obtains values ​​of 2700 to 3000 degrees Kelvin, and we recommend it for locations such as a living room, bedroom, study ...


Neutral light: it is set in values ​​from 3700 to 4500 degrees Kelvin. It is usually the most natural of the three options, and can be used in any corner of our home.


Cold light: color temperature of more than 5000 degrees Kelvin, similar to the light of a cloudy or sunny day. It is recommended for kitchens, workplace, bathroom ...
